Castaway by eggwacker Castaway by eggwacker
Behind hidden corners and secret squares,
we lie like ships,
abandoned at the darkening wake of sea,
Enraptured in waiting.
Waiting for what?
Waiting to find,
Waiting to be found...
Waiting for the One.

these are great manipulations but the reflection on the sky in the water in the foreground and background reflect a blue sky and in the manipulation the sky is bloody red.
i guess the water reflection in the background you could say its reflecting the moon and that would work for me but the water in the foreground needs work in my opinion.

great idea none the less and you pulled it off wonderfully

Hmmm, someone is getting pretty good at this all manipulation thing, isn't he?

The first thing that hit me in the face when I first saw this was the sky - it's bloody amazing. Actually, when I first saw this I was like "Wow, that's fantastic!" and I think I might've drooled a little bit hehe. Anyways, yes, that sky... I just love how intense it is. I also think it kind of sets the mood. I mean, the whole manip is pretty dark, but I think the sky just adds more of a dark and foreboding atmosphere. I think if it had been a wrecked boat or something it would've just enhanced that whole mood, but I still do love that boat as well.

I'm loving all of the colours and personally think the colours at the bottom part look good. Although I can see that if there was no red in the boat that perhaps they might not have worked so well. The red ties in with the sky. I also like the moon - it's a nice little touch and adds a bit of contrast too. But because this is such a great piece I think it would've been just as lovely without.

To be honest with you, I can't really find anything wrong with this and I am no expert in this field anyways. It's always a pleasure to look at your work and I find myself adding this to my favourites because it's simply breathtaking. Beautifully done :+favlove:

I absolutely love the sky in this. The colours on the ground don't seem well suited to the sky though. Even so, it still looks quite amazing. Very surreal and yet it draws me into its grasp.

Thank you for the comment, Murf. I tried working on the colors of the puddles, but I couldn't get it to look convincing enough, so I ended up leaving the original colors and just darkening it. Hopefully, I'll continue to improve with my manip skills so that I'll be able to eliminate these types of small problems in the future. Hope you're having a great week!
